It is a very nice restaurant in the Wendake Premiere Nations Hotel. It offers sophisticated dishes prepared with local products (for some very exotic like grilled wapiti). During the dinner there is a show performed by Hurons, which is a very interesting experience, as it creates a special atmosphere but it’s not disturbing.

Very good. Native Indian inspired, but more of a fusion style. Lots of local ingredients. Well suited to the whole family. 4-, 5-, and 6-service meals available. Avoid the kids menu though. The kids can have the a-la-carte stuff.

I was told the food was very good... I was pleasantly surprised , it was even better than I expected. 4 people at our table eating different plates, all found to be very good! I recommend this place, a little pricy, but worth the experience.

Since he is using seasoning coming directly from the Boreal forest, we can say that his cuisine is unique. We are glad that you appreciated it. Hoping we will see you back. Tiawenhk, entïio’ chia’...

Based on the various reviews and pictures I saw online, I decided to visit this restaurant located in a very nice, tastefully decorated hotel in Wendake. Its location is great for spending more than just lunch or dinner time, as this village does a great job of promoting the First Nations culture with a modern, sophisticated flare. The hotel lobby...
